After you install the BMC Synthetic Transaction Execution Adapter (TEA) Agent, it automatically starts as a service on the agent computer, but you can also run the agent as process. You can run the TEA Agent as a process to support applications and technologies that require processes, such as for browser-driven scripts.
Before you run the TEA Agent as a process, ensure that the service is not running. You can stop the service in the APM Console, or through the operating system tools.
Log on to the TEA Agent computer as a user with administrator privileges.
A command prompt opens and displays the status of the TEA Agent.
You can stop the TEA Agent process from the computer with the TEA Agent, or you can stop the process from the APM Console, as described in the following procedure.
